Just before midnight, a large fire-breathing green dragon with flashing
eyes descended towards the soundboard area, picked up a white-clad
damsel, and flew her over the crowd and to the stage. Balloons
dropped, candy was hurled into the crowd by young friends and family
on stage, and Father Time (Bill Walton) strode about.

Built For Comfort
Completely straight and sober I attended this show with my wife and this recording is definitely better than the sound we heard in the hall. I Wish I could have heard it that night the way I heard it tonight. She says she heard it just fine. I have played in too many rock and roll bands to hear anything --- much. Sigh...
Bill Graham Civic is a treacherous venue for sound. Dennis Leonard mixed the sound that night and I went up to him afterwards and held out a laurel wreath. "Hey," I said, "you do what you can." Dennis nodded in tacit agreement while he snaked another patch cord 'round his arm.
We purchased the official SBD's and they are pretty good, but this particular presentation actually sounds fuller and richer in tonality than my discs. How can you explain?
Anyway, being an old timey Dead Head I laboriously dragged my wretched carcass to this show and after they finished PITB I grabbed my wife and we went to the lounge. We found an empty couch and laid our tired bones down into it and listened to the Terrapin Suite. It was so sweet that i commented to my wife that we should have spent the whole evening there --- ehh, but she wanted to dance really close to the stage for once and so I was willing to accommodate her desires. I mean, she does a lot of accommodating for me, too. It works both ways, or else I believe it should. Two hours we were thrust into that area of total oblivion and it was about all this old carcass could stand. The argument for such a submission is surely due to the encroaching factual reality that I may never be able to do it again, and so here's for one last fling...that is, until the next time I can muster the courage to expend myself again to the proverbial max. Oh, the paradox.
Sorry folks, I'm just too creaky for holding out in the mosh pit front of stage. My attitude is to leave the space for the young and hearty. Hope they will live to experience the same circumstance someday. You just bow your head and say, "a-yep" like you were the Pepperidge Farm man.
It was a soft reminder. The old Dead Head ain't built for speed.
